Blind Beast vs. Killer Dwarf

More friends doing awesome stuff

We wanted to let everyone know that the DVD for Teruo Ishii's final film [Blind Beast vs. Killer Dwarf] was recently released by Panik House. Ishii himself deserves an entire post himself, but the late director also did the infamous, Rampo-inspired "Horror of Malformed Men". The film features Shinya Tsukamoto as famous detective Kogoro Akechi and Shion Sono, director of Suicide Circle, and is loosely based on an Edogawa Rampo novel. Regulars to the site are already thinking-- 'Fuck! I have to get my hands on this'... BUT THERE'S MORE! The DVD also features a cover and tons of menu and packaging art by our good friend Gea!

Read a review and DVD details. The DVD includes (in addition to the film and other extras):

"Geaphiles" - A gallery of conceptual art illustrations by New York underground artist Gea!"

She says:
Even if you are not into boobs, gore and dwarfs (then I think you must be insane) you should still go out and buy this for the extras (there's mini gallery in the dvd with the artwork I did exclusively for this feature), a sticker (which also has my art on it), and the Special Numbered Insert Card featuring the personal stamp of Little Frankie aka The Killer Dwarf, now deceased (with my drawing of Lil' Frankie on it ).
You can also check out the trailer on their site.

Congratulations to Gea on this ridiculously cool project!!

Hey kids, Evan here. I just finished the rather huge art project I've been working on for the past 2 weeks... a triptych of illustrated-photography with the theme of "Birth". I'd post them directly here, but they are very much not safe for work (nudity and blood), so click one of the previews below or here to see the pictures.

I put a total of over 3 days worth of prop-building, shooting, clean-up, Wacom tablet drawing, and lots of editing into these, so I very much hope you enjoy them. The idea behind these works had been in my mind for a few months now, so it was very satisfying to make them into a reality. Extra thanks to Dona for modelling!

For Ben! (Midori clip from YouTube)

We found this clip online, via our friends at El Blog Rarito... A trailer for the anime adaptation of Suehiro Maruo's MIDORI AKA Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show!

UPDATE: Evan downloaded a torrent of the anime last night! We'll post more details once it's been... digested! According to wikipedia, J.A. Seazer did the soundtrack to this?

UPDATE 2: For those interested in the torrent: follow the El Blog Rarito link, then click "Elink" - just below the YouTube clip to get it.

UPDATE 3: From Rarito, here are some samples of the soundtrack to check out.
